Just Golf Lingo

There are a lot of ‘Golf Terms’ (“LINGO”) that might or might not make sense to us normal ‘Weekend Hackers’? As I shared with you, when I started my ‘Golf Journey’, over half a century ago, I was told that I need to be more ‘Inside-Out’ and not ‘Over-The-Top’. All I could envision was socks and underwear coming out of the dryer … ‘Inside-Out’! Let’s try to not use any more of these than necessary? There are some that really do a good explaining job for us, but not all!

I am thinking of this common term “Reverse C” or “Reverse Pivot”. Are they different? Reverse in relation to what?

Let’s see if we can make this simpler to grasp? What is my ‘Pivot’? The ‘Pivot’ is my ‘Spinal Core, Column or Spinal Engine’ … my ‘Back Bone’. It is generally relatively straight and or plumb. “GENERALLY” in the realm of straight-ish. It is a variable ‘Human Component’ that is usually in motion. When we are at the ‘Top Of Front Swing’ (TOF – SS #10 or SS #11 Bounce Back) our spinal column is relatively straight or plumb. Not a ‘C’ but more of an ‘I’.

It is ‘Time For A Feel’. What is a ‘Reverse C’? Swing normally and easily to your TOB (‘Top Of Back Swing’) You will experience the your Spinal Column is ‘Aft Tilted’ as well as curved back to towards the ‘Brace Side’. This is your ‘Normal C’. Now move your head quite towards the ‘Target Side’ with minimal Hip Movement (Rotational or Lateral). Your condition will now be ‘The Reverse C’ or the opposite shape.

Because this activity is centered around your “Spinal or Pivot Axis”, we also come to refer to it as “The Reverse Pivot” or “Reverse Tilt”.

Thanks for this moment of your time! Well spent?
